Richard Baedecker, an ex-astronaut, must have thought that walking on the moon would be the greatest challenge in his life, until he meets a mysterious woman who leads him through his past to find higher meaning. Baedecker is challenged by his past and throughout his journey confronts his troubled son and the woman he loves. He searches his past through his almost forgotten childhood, his move to Oregon to the death flight of the Challenger. He confronts two fellow astronauts, one who claims to have found the truth and one who has found a mystery in death.
